Scottish Night at Morton’s The Steakhouse

Thursday April 8, 5 pm

Cult kilt-maker, Howie Nicholsby—who has “dressed” Alan Cumming, Brian Cox, Vin Diesel, and Lenny Kravitz—will be on hand at Morton’s in White Plains to celebrate Scottish Night. He’ll be measuring customers for his hand-made-in-Scotland kilts, which can be fashioned from denim, camouflage, and squeaky PVC (as well as traditional tartan for the meek). Proceeds go to Children1st, a charity that protects children from harm and neglect in Scotland and helps them recover from abuse.

The reception runs from 5 to 7:30 pm and will feature Scotch whiskey tastings, Scottish salmon, and hors d’oeuvres. The cost to attend the cocktail reception is $40 (with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to the charity), or $175 per person for dinner at Nicholsby’s private table.

As yet, there is no mention of haggis, the traditional Scottish sausage made from sheep stomach, lungs, and oatmeal. True Scots may want to bring their own.
